    1989 Grammy winner for vocal performance.
    Before Natalie Cole crossed over to a more mainstream audience by performing jazz-pop in the manner of her legendary late father Nat King Cole, she spent many years making music in a contemporary R&B vein. Her Grammy winning GOOD TO BE BACK (1989) is a fine example of Cole's skills as an R&B singer. The album's four singles--the buoyant "As a Matter of Fact" and the ballads "Starting Over Again," "Miss You Like Crazy," and the Freddie Jackson duet "I Do"--make the album a winner all on their own. The overall sound, which features prominent keyboards and drum programming, is vintage `80s, but will be warmly familiar to fans of that era's pop-oriented R&B.
